I went for a float in a sensory deprivation tank today, and was served this tea afterwards. It was quite light, sweet and fruity, with a hint of tartness, and a bit creamy. Quite nice.
The float was really quite neat. You’re in a pod with a few inches of body temp water and 1000lbs of salt dissolved in it. You can have light and music or dark and silent – I opted for dark and silent. The water keeps your body very buoyant and the space is very quiet. All I could hear was my heartbeat, my stomach and the occasional splash when I moved.
I was a bit too distracted with thoughts and noticing my body – I’m a bit hyper-sensitive and aware of things like itches, and my neck has been bothering me, so I noticed this stuff a lot. But a few times I did hit that kind of dreamy, half asleep half awake zone that’s so lovely and meditative. But it was pleasant, and when I got out I actually felt taller and my posture felt so much better.
All in all a really lovely experience – the staff, the spa, the float itself. I’m looking forward to going back and trying it with some soothing spa music to hopefully help quiet my thoughts.
